Introductory Treatise On Lie's Theory Of Finite Continuous Transformation Groups
by John Edward Campbell
Publisher: Oxford Clarendon Press 1903
Number of pages: 460
In this treatise an attempt is made to give, in as elementary a form as possible, the main outlines of Lie's theory of Continuous Groups. Even those familiar with the theory of Continuous Groups may find something new in the form in which the theory is here presented.

These lecture notes provide a concise introduction to Lie groups, Lie algebras, and isometric and adjoint actions, aiming at advanced undergraduate and graduate students. A special focus is given to maximal tori and roots of compact Lie groups.

'Continuous Groups Of Transformations' sets forth the general theory of Lie and his contemporaries and the results of recent investigations with the aid of the methods of the tensor calculus and concepts of the new differential geometry.

This expository article introduces the topic of roots in a compact Lie group. Compared to the many other treatments of this standard topic, I intended for mine to be relatively elementary, example-driven, and free of unnecessary abstractions.
